So I got my nails done last week.
For the past five years or so I get a manicure every two to three weeks. It started with just clear polish, giving my nails a nice clean look. Eventually I moved up to getting clear Shellac (a UV cured gel type polish) which has the advantage of lasting about two weeks with no chipping. I then progressed to a clear sparkly finish which is a bit more fun but still doesn’t attract too much undue attention. Then, about a two years ago, I started getting a sheer pink color under the sparkly finish. It added a hint of color which was noticeable if you really looked at my nails but still relatively neutral. I wore that for about a year before choosing a less sheer pink base. So for about the last year now, my nails are noticeably sparkly pink. Not screaming across the room pink, but enough that they can no longer go unnoticed while sitting a table with other people.
